Bleeding Hearts – Rule of Thirds

And don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter.

It’s quiet, but the roots are down there riotous. – Rumi


This bleeding heart plant in my garden is presently and quietly buried under about three or four feet of snow. ย It is reassuring to think that “the roots down there (are) riotous” ๐Ÿ™‚

The photo was taken last June…. Oh, how I look forward to re-uniting!!

    These are such delicate flowers… The name is a bit melancholy but they’re so pretty! Great bokeh and Rule of Thirds that you captured here!

      They are the most romantic this flowers, I think. I’m looking forward to seeing them and all their friends again ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s time to start looking for Spring….wherever she is. Thanks for the compliments on the photo. I hope you are having a lovely weekend!

        Me too! Spring isn’t far away! And we change the clocks on March 8 so that makes me happy!
        It was a great weekend too!

    They are sturdy plants. I will come back if not you have this beautiful photo to show for.

      They really are very lovely. Isn’t it interesting that the hardiest plants cand look the most delicate?

    Bleeding Hearts are one of my favorites. They are so delicate and beautiful. I’m hoping our almost 7′ of snow is keeping them tucked in for the winter and that they will bring joy to us in a few months. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Seven feet! Yikes! Looking out at this white landscape, it’s almost difficult to believe that the garden is still there, isn’t it? But it’s almost March…. And it WILL melt … It always has before. :).
